NARUC Utility Rate School

Date: May 9-13 2011
Location: San Diego, California

With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), NARUC arranged for four Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) staff to attend the NARUC Utility Rate School, which provides instruction in public utility ratemaking. The program is considered invaluable to anyone needing a practical and comprehensive introduction to setting utility rates.

The training featured a mock rate case presented by an accessible program faculty of leading experts in every aspect of the process – from establishing revenue requirements to determining the allowed rate of return. The course also provided the NERC staff with exposure to current issues and an excellent networking experience for regulatory and utility professionals, plus an amenable learning environment.
